Descendants of Black Bereans

Saturday, March 3, 2012

Did you have family who attended Berea College prior to the 1904 Day Law when the school was ordered to become segregated?  Larry Hamilton's great grandmother, Cynthia Ross Hannon attended during that era and kept a journal with notes and letters from her friends. In Hamilton's book, Between Two Suns: The Berean Experience he used these notes as chapter headings.  Since both my grandmothers, Julia Gray Richards and Emma Blythe Turner were also students at Berea pre-1904, it made me wonder who else has connections to Berea during this period.  Anyone you know?
